HPI Receives Contract for a SCADA Integration Project
HOUSTON (August 23, 2017) – HPI announced today that due to the successful installation of the SCADA System and controls system upgrade for 6 Wartsila generator packages at Pan-Am’s La Chorrera plant in 2013, it has been selected to integrate 3 new Wartsila generator packages and Balance of Plant into the existing SCADA platform.
The project will integrate the supervision and operations of the 9 generator packages with the same look and feel and common environment enabling the client to monitor the systems more effectively, and provide for better reliability of the power plant. This integration also permits the client to achieve higher levels of efficiency through the inclusion of new signals enabling calculations for more accurate fuel consumption.
Scheduled to begin in August, the project is estimated to be completed by November 2017.
